Brandon Jennings joined the Knuckleheads podcast hosted by two former NBA players Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. The 30-year-old point guard, who last played in the NBA in 2018, recalled the first time he met Michael Jordan.

One of the biggest high school prospects met the Chicago Bulls legend during his rookie year in the NBA. It happened when Milwaukee faced Charlotte.

“As I’m walking into the arena to the game. Mike comes and he’s like ‘What’s up, BJ’ I was like ‘What’s up, Mike’ I was like ooh Mike knew me. I’m nice,” Jennings recalled the first encounter with Jordan.
